Why are these numbers so bleak? Three years ago reports were saying we had to grow by a minimum of 250,000 full time jobs a month just to stay level. These same reports are now talking about the recovery being slow. By any historical comparisons, these are pathetic numbers that are spun to sound like progress is being made. We know we have had creeping central control with more and more bureaucratic control and regulation of the economy for years. We know our national debt has been growing for years. These factors limit potential private sector growth. The rapid increase in both the regulation and the national debt has placed a severe limit on any potential growth.
Any historical study will reveal that when the Marxist/Progressives control and centralize commerce as Marx told them to; when the Marxist/Progressives increase national debt like Marx told them to; the resulting impact on the economy is negative. When you also take into consideration that the Marxist/Progressive takeover of 20% of our economy (Obamacare) is now being implemented and the tip of the economic impact is being revealed, the reality is that the economic growth will be greatly restricted. It will also greatly limit individual freedom, which is the plan of the current Marxist/Progressive regime.
We will long for the day when a paltry 148,000 jobs were created. We will long for the day when 63.9% of the people were working or at least looking for work. History supports this statement. Ask the people of Russia, of China, of Cuba, of North Korea, and most recently of Venezuela. Unless we Freedom Loving Americans are willing to learn the evils of the current regime and begin an open and honest debate about the Marxist policies being implemented every single day, we will go the same route as the above. It is time for open and honest debate.
